SAFETY + COMFORT = ENJOYMENT
​​Sit back, relax, and close your eyes. Imagine yourself being on a boat looking out at the ocean with the fresh salt air blowing on your face, you look up to see this beautiful Island. The boat stops & drops the anchor. You look over the side of the boat to see clear water, kelp beds and maybe a seal or two swimming around. You stop and think, what beauty lies below the surface? You don your scuba gear for the first time, jump in, put your head down and start to swim to the bottom below and what do you see for the first time? Amazing kelp beds, fish and reefs and if you are really lucky an elusive black giant sea bass.

Come join ALOHA DIVE on your Boat excursion getaway to the beautiful California Channel Islands. Why dive only one area of one Island when you can dive many areas of the 8 beautiful Islands we have?

Pool sessions are part of our basic open water certification course
